COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised. Seasonal - Spring.
"Bound to satisfy".
Triple hopped - Super Styrian hops added twice to the coppers then Styrian Goldings added. Hopping Hare is thrice hopped with three types of hop used during the brewing process. Aromatic Goldings and Cascade combine to provide an uplifting citrus-grapefruit and floral aroma, whilst First Gold carries the bitterness. The effect is a refreshing ale with a unique hoppy aroma and well-balanced bitterness that is bound to satisfy! It is a terrific match with roast lamb and spicy Thai dishes!

Absolutely loved this as my best ale of the year on cask. However, disappoints a little in the bottle. Medium hoppiness, with some green fruity tones. Clean dry finish.

0,5 l bottle as a gift.
Clear golden one with a small lacing white head. Aroma& taste of some charamel and toasted grains, green apples. So, this is an easy drinkable english style Pale ale.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks Etty’s hubby for bringing it :) Clear blond, white foam. Skunky, bready aroma, light bitterness. Light body, popcorn, artificial, sweet popcorn taste. Disgusting on one hand but quite interesting on the other. I kinda liked the smell.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Clear golden with a white head. Skunky aroma with some grassy and earthy hints, some bready malt and diacetyl hints. Really weird buttery flavor with a disgusting cheap popcorn aftertaste that continues after you swallow the beer. I can’t leave the beer in my mouth long enough to rate the palate properly. Really undrinkable. YUCK!

dogbomb (997) - ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours a yellow clear gold with a steady yellowy-white head. Smells of sugar-sprinkled grapefruit. In the mouth, zesty and fruits with a little floral taste. Some pleasant sweet, almost caramelic, malts in there too. Finish has a little vanilla and a strong hoppy bitter finish which hangs around quite strongly. Good effort.

500ml Bottle. The was brewed firstly as a seasonal bottle but its success has meant that its avaiable all year round - usually from your local tesco. Dont let that put you off tho -this is my 1st choice session bottled beer. Theres nothing stand out brilliant about it - it just has a bautifully clean moderate taste. Somehow it just hits all the right buttons with me for a beer to drink all night. Its aroma is hoppy, zesty critusy (grapefruit) with a hint or two of flowers and mild toffee. Appearance is a golden nectar with a medium off white lasting (but not creamy) head, Taste, you get hit with a creamy malt as it enters the mouth and this passes throu a slightly biscuity phase to grapefruit and then to hops and back to malt bfore exitting through a slight bitterness. Sublime... and after typing that review I want one and I want it now!!
